BIC for me.. I take the flints out of the used up ones for my Zippo. The Zip I use on machine mades. I should be good for a looooong time
You can't beat a good Zip!

Matches only for me. I've tried Zippos, Bics, Djeep(which I like for cigars), Old boy knock-offs, and even hemp wick.. nothing seems to get tobacco going like a match. I've used cedar spills lit with some other fire source too, and that works just as well but tends to give your bowl a woodsy flavor.
Hey Hout! Where ya been? Missing you over in WAYS, brother. 😊
I recently decided to really hammer down on my drawing practice, and I just haven't gotten out for a pipe in about a week. I have been spending virtually every free moment doing timed figure sketches.. doing a study on Reilly rhythms and gesture.. For some reason I find smoking a pipe and drawing to be a somewhat stressful combination, although pipe ash does give some interesting values when you shade with it :D

Glad to see ya, sir! Sounds like a good investment of your time & effort. But it seems strange not having you around more. 😊

Well when I am choosing between drawing naked lady models, and smoking a pipe.. naked ladies win every time. :lol:

Diamond brand wooden matches. That's it. I always have a Bic on the coffee table. I'll kiss the bowl with it when a quick flame is needed, (you know, when the match burns out too quickly leaving that small portion of tobac that didn't light), as opposed to wasting a whole match on quick kiss of flame. I don't carry a lighter out and about though... I waste the match.

No match ever gives its life in vain if it is used to try to light a pipe.
